Take a culinary adventure down the Amazon River. Nao, the Culinary Institute of America’s restaurant at the Pearl Brewery, 312 Pearl Parkway, is featuring the flavors of the Amazon from Dec. 2 to Jan. 26.

“The vast region known as the Amazon encompasses 40 percent of South America,” a release from the school says. “Its jungle and unique treasures are integral to the health of our planet. Also found there are the flavors and diverse culinary traditions that make Amazonian food so exciting. From chayote to açai and from papaya to Brazil nuts, our tribute to the flavors of the Amazon awaits you at Nao!”

Featured dishes include Xuxu Salad, which is made with chayote; Moqueca di Peixe, a seafood stew; and Creme de Papay con Açai, a fruit pudding.
